Geometric Abstract art

This is one of the forms of abstract art that uses geometric forms placed into a non-illusionistic space (though not always) and then combined into non representational(non objective) compositions. From the experience and results of the many years of research in the area of art, artists have suggested that the process of geometric abstraction can be a solution to the modern problems where some artists have been rejecting illusionistic practices.

Hard Edge art

Hard Edge art is a style of abstract painting which became popular in the 1960s. It included areas of color differentiated by the use of crisp, sharp edges which are precisely painted with geometric precision. Jules Langster described the art as hard-edge painting.

Avant-garde

Unusual and experimental ideas in arts or on the side of people introducing the ideas. The ideas push the boundaries or limits of what is accepted as the status quo or norm in the realm of culture. The movement is liked by artists and many of them continue doing it tracing Dada's history through situationists all the way to the post modern artists.
